Police said they have arrested a 27-year-old German in connection with the attack, which took place around 5 a.m. local time at the station in the small town of Grafing, about 38 kilometers (23 miles) east of Munich.
Prosecutors have said they believe the man had “an apparent Islamist motive”. Local media report witnesses heard the assailant shout “Allahu Akbar (God is great)” during the attack.
